This paper focuses on the experimental investigation of strength parameters such as Compressive strength, Split tensile strength and Flexural strength of M40 grade concrete for 7 and 28 days curing period using mineral admixtures and Polypropylene Fibres. Moreover, Utilization of mineral admixtures in SCC not only reduces cost but also reduces the heat of hydration. Optimum dosage of super plasticizer is added to ensure workability of SCC. Various workability tests (Slump Flow, V-Funnel, U-box

In this study Cement was partially replaced by Ground Granulated Blast furnace slag (GGBS) 10% and 15%, Fly ash 10%, 15% and 20% and Alccofine 10% in one mix at a time in different proportions along with Polypropylene.
